Reality TV star Kim Kardashian has revealed that she may have to get her uterus removed after giving birth to her second child.
The 34-year-old reality TV star said that the doctors feel there is a possibility of her suffering from a condition called placenta accreta which she also faced during her first pregnancy where she gave birth to her daughter North, reported Aceshowbiz.
With placenta accreta, the placenta or a part of the placenta does not completely detach from the uterus after a woman gives birth, potentially causing severe blood loss.
"I had this condition called placenta accreta. There were a couple of little operations to fix all that, so that created a little hole in my uterus, which I think made it really tough to get pregnant again. It was a long road.
"They think I'll have placenta accreta again. If the placenta grows a little bit deeper than it did last time, then they are prepared to have my uterus removed, which is a little scary for me. I think we're just gonna go day by day, see how overwhelming it is, and see how the delivery goes," she said.
